Courses Available With its mild climate, friendly populace, and safe streets, Rabat is truly the ideal place for a foreigner to study in Morocco. There is much to explore within the city. And also a lot of natural beauty to be found. Rabat's central location puts it within easy reach of other fascinating destinations like Casablanca, Meknes, Fes, Tangier, and Marrakech. Each of these cities is just a short train-ride away from tranquil Rabat. Rabat is the capital city of Morocco, and is located along the Atlantic Ocean, at the mouth of the river Bou Regreg. Famous for: it’s Atlantic coastline; historical monuments; traditional cuisine; the Hassan Tower. The College is located in the up-market neighbourhood of Souissi, in Rabat, within a 10 minute drive from the centre of the city and the Medina. Housed in a spacious facility and enclosed within its own tranquil garden, the school is an ideal place in which to learn Arabic and offers students a place for quiet study or reflection, away from the hustle and bustle of city life in Morocco. The school building combines both modern and historic architectural styles. Each room has it's own unique atmosphere, with Moroccan mosaics decorating the walls and ceilings throughout. There are 7 classrooms and a student lounge for homework and study use. Wifi runs throughout the building and the library and computer lab give students additional computer and the internet access.

Standard Course 20 lessons per week Class size: max 12 people. Ideal for all age groups (18yrs+) and language abilities. MSA and CMA programmes offered.

Martina: Gap Year Course “The sights and sounds of Rabat were SO different to anything I’d imagined – it really was like entering another world – the noise, bustle and crowds in the medina, where everything from traditional lamps to modern day electronics were for sale was just intense, until you got used to it. So many contrasts; the endless Atlantic surf bounding on the beaches, the ruins & storks of Chellah and the wide streets in the French Ville Nouveau. Best of all for me was the support from the college staff, the excellent tuition from my teachers and the chance to meet so many other students who shared my passion for the Arabic language. Definitely an experience I’ll remember – thanks CESA, so glad I got to do this!” Brett: Intensive Course “I have met a variety of different people from all over the world. The students and staff are very friendly and hospitable. I spent the first week with a Moroccan family which was a great experience and they spoke both French and Arabic. The course was quite intensive with 6 hours of lessons a day, homework and exams at the end of the week. This came as a bit of a shock at 27, it’s been a while since my last exam. But this all ensures that you learn as much as possible. The class sizes were small so they could pay a lot of attention to your language development and everyone in the class got to know each other very well. There are school organized trips including a trip to the Saharan Dessert and excursions to the Souk and Palaces during the week. Overall it was a fantastic experience although the roads can be a bit precarious.”
